Read the synopsis of Roberto Devereux, a tragic opera by Donizetti.
The African Queen is one of my favorite classic romantic movies, it's about a middle-aged spinster and an rough guy who tips the bottle more than a bit. They fall in love despite or maybe because of being total opposites.

Humphrey Bogart as Charlie Allnut in the movie The African Queen - "It's a great thing to have a lady aboard with clean habits. It sets the man a good example. A man alone, he gets to living like a hog."
